Arrest Made in Connection With Drug-Related Shooting in South Windsor

Police said they have made an arrest in connection with what they called a drug-related shooting in South Windsor in February

Chad Ransom, 24, of Hartford, was arrested on a warrant Tuesday in connection with the shooting and robbery on Gorski Drive in February 2018, police said. 

A resident of the home reported that a man who arrived at his door shot another man who was visiting his home. 

The victim had been shot in the leg, police said, and officers found two pounds of marijuana while investigating the shooting. Now police said they have arrested a suspect. 

Ransom has been charged with assault in the first degree, criminal attempt at robbery in the first degree, threatening in the first degree, carrying a pistol without a permit, reckless endangerment in the first degree and criminal attempt at possession of a controlled substance. 

Investigators determined that all the men all knew each other and the incident was a drug deal that turned violent, police said. 

Ransom was held on $400,000 court-set bond and is due in Manchester Superior Court later today.
